Hardware Hacking with Flex and the Arduino

This weekend I had a chance to play some more with the Arduino that I got at 360|Flex.  I’ve got so many ideas of things I want to build with it, which is probably a bad thing.  I’ve got $60 worth of parts coming from SparkFun just so I can play with more than a few LEDs 🙂

I made a 20 minute screencast on a little project I made this weekend.  It is a volume meter that reacts to MP3’s playing in a Flex app.  In its entirely, the entire project is very simple — 4 LEDS connected to the Arduino, and a 50 line Flex 4 application which controls them.  I’d like to say that there was a hard part to this, but thanks to Justin Mclean’s class, there really wasn’t one.  You can download the Flex source-code to the app here (but you will have to supply your own MP3 to play in the assets folder).

      The links to the project are now fixed. My host changed the mime-types on me, which caused all sorts of downloads to fail. It has been tested as working now.

      Sorry about that!
